Heart's Sanctuary

leaves change colour
twirling to the cold ground
in submission--
place a bright orange leaf
beside an old photograph

a dash of colour
to highlight warm memories--
autumn winds howl
without breaching 
heart's sanctuary

A New Day

    



Away all sorrow

   Move swiftly into the past

      Today's a new day

        Wanting only happiness

            Tomorrow is further still...

Spring marks no return
to life from sleep, no rebirth
of something long dead...

but here rises a new hope
from the ashes of the world.

'Being bipolar is like a rose'

Being bipolar
is like a rose born missing
some of its petals,--
its color is more vibrant
than all the other roses'!

It may never be
part of a "perfect" bouquet,--
but its rich pigment
can be a precious paint for
Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa."

Alas, it may not
attract the most "honeybees"
in the wilds of life,--
but its petals can be crushed
to make the finest perfumes.

Being bipolar
is like a rose born missing
some of its petals,--
its bouquet is more fragrant
than all the other roses'!

HOPE

Darkest poorest land
Where power and pride blinds men
sickness dwells and steal
Where is that candle that lights?
A star to spring crumb of life...

Christmas in July Alone

A summer abroad
Homesick for my family
Silent nights abound
Building a snowman from sand  
My loneliness melts away...

One Kiss Bliss

Secreted are we
Our bliss every night one kiss
Meet at Mt. Uka*
As O-Kuni-Nushi and
Suseri-Hime once did 

Escape jealousy
Our bliss every night one kiss
A dearth show of love
For now it must be enough
Our rapture depends on it

Foresight favors us
Our bliss every night one kiss
Sapient virtues
Chaste restraint, infinite wait
Choice removed- prorogued passion.



A. Green-
O-Kuni-Nushi and Suseri-Hime (lovers in Japanese mythology)
build their palace at the foot of Mt. Uka.

Dying Daily

I must die each day  
die to remorse and regret
die to yesterday
then I must rise up and walk
then I must take up my cross

Matthew 16:24

Waiting

                                        I dream in silence
                               While alone in time's stillness
                                        You will disembark
                                       As I await your return
                                   Warmly clothed in loneliness

Ravages women young and old

Winners fight this evil jinx

feasting on faith's mustard seed
contented with Love's promise
